Bermudez & Fili Added To UFC Charlotte
Featherweight contenders Andre Fili and Dennis Bermudez will face off on January 27th on the UFC on FOX 27 from the Spectrum Center in Charlotte, N.C.
Fili broke the .500 mark inside the Octagon with his unanimous decision victory over Artem Lobov in October. Now he looks to get to 6-4 in the UFC as he heads into his fifth year signed with the promotion.
Bermudez coming off of two defeats to Chan Sung Jung in 2016 and Darren Elkins in 2017, looks to bounce back against Fili. Ever since his TUF 14 loss to Diego Brando, Bermudez has been an impressive 9-4 inside the Octagon and looks for his tenth win
The TUF 14 runner-up, who beat the likes of Jimmie Rivera and Akira Corassani on the reality show, has won nine out of 13 bouts since losing the TUF final to Diego Brandao in 2011.
The UFC on FOX card will be headlined by a middleweight rematch between Ronaldo Souza and Derek Brunson.
